The search for the perfect white shirt is never an easy one. I found this gorgeous Klara buttondown at Anthropologie at the start of the year and I haven’t stopped wearing it since. Made from oh-so-sheer silk it has a fabulous feel and a wonderful flow along the asymmetric hem. Recently I’ve been styling it with the front tied together but I’m usually wearing it loose and untucked, as I did for London Fashion Weekend, here.
I can tell I am reacting to the floral explosion this spring since I’m craving monochrome lately. But my recent monochrome comes dressed with metal (you’ll surely see this theme develop on the blog over the next few months). Case in point – I’m utterly obsessed with these Wing High Sandals from the Unique collection at Topshop.
One of my purchases from February’s trip to London, I agonised over the practicality of these shoes in store (the thought process: “so, these are sandals but really they seem like a boot. They seem like a boot but they are a boot with a peep toe. Hmm. And cutouts. But really they are sandals and I do like them. Hmm. I don’t need them, but hey everyone can live without fashion. I like them. A LOT.“)
The point, Blog Reader, is not actually one related to practicality. The point, Blog Reader, is that I feel like Wonder Woman. And that’s reason enough for me.
With their gold metallic heels and winged detail they are a truly unique design. Available in black leather/gold or off white/gold I’m off to a flying start (Could. Not. Resist) wearing a motif which was a huge for fall 2012. I’d say this was a small stepping stone (again, could not resist) along the way to me being head to toe in gold come the Christmas parties – anyone want to buy me this gorgeous Ralph Lauren gown?
